This road trip was long but not long enough. A big thank you to everyone who helped make it possible 😊

Started our last day off right with breakfast at Sherri's 👍🏼

Prettiest gas stop yet in the middle of Nowhere, CA.
Even though we got back to our campsite at 5:00, we all packed up and were on the road by 10:00.
We drove Pepperdine and Korbyn came the closest to peeing his pants out of anyone on the trip. We had lunch looking over the ocean with my best friend, Caroline 💕 (She didn't want me to leave)
Breakfast of ham, more ham, and cheese on english muffins by Korbyn. #masterchef #😴

'Twas quite a night to remember. Firstly, google maps attempted to get us shot as we drove on to a military base in search of the illusive London Fog beverage from Starbucks. Next, we drove to the venue and attempted to get our dear Millie a ticket for which we sure we weren't able to get. Then came the man, the legend, the god: SAM TUCKER ELLIOT who offered us the last available ticket to Millie for the small price of guessing his self-proclaimed "white boy middle name." (Which, in fact, was not tickles) when we missed all three of our name chances, Sam TUCKER Elliot handed over the ticket FREE OF CHARGE! We then proceeded to the dome where Gambino began to blow our minds with some tribal visuals, killer moves and some soulful singing. After this wonderful experience, we headed to the magical land of Denny's for some direly needed 3 am breakfast.
Second awesome dinner by Korbyn - sausage and bean burritos 🙌🏼
We're all feeling incredibly happy and lucky right now 💗
Henna under the rock spires of White Tank. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon. -Max Mäl
Made it to White Tank.
Set up a bomb shower.
Took bomb showers.
Ate ham sammies in the shade.
Took a two hour nap together.
Took a quick stop to do some bouldering. It was stellar.
(s/o to my new Walmart tennis shoes for making it all possible)
This morning we ate a breakfast of yogurt, granola, and fruit, using of cut-in-half water bottles for bowls and sliced up plastic lids for spoons.
Then we packed up to move to White Tank campground 🏜👌🏼
Just woke up to this 🌵😍

We arrived in Joshua Tree National Park in the dark at 8:30. Korbyn cooked us awesome skewered peppers and burgers, an amazing meal topped off by salsa and popcorn for dessert.
It was a night of conservation and crazy stars 👌🏼
GoPro set on time lapse.
We are all fighting the booty ache.
See you in 126 miles Joshua Tree!
Departing from Grandma Dee's lovely abode
Stellar breakfast of scrambled eggs, waffles, banana bread, various fruits, sausage and the always delicious bacon!
After a little reorganizing and filling gallons upon gallons of water, we're off on the road again towards Joshua Tree -Max Mäl

We finally finished our first 15 hour stint 😴 Max's Great Aunt Dee was amazing - she stayed up and had lasagna and salad waiting for us for dinner at 11:00 p.m.
Bend Burger Company 😍 feat. Sloot's stellar parking job
We made it to Bend, Oregon but are at an auto parts store instead of at lunch.
We successfully refilled the oil, and after 4 bulbs and a little knife modification replaced a brake light like a boss.
(I say we, but all I did was hold the light bulbs) #dreamteam
Day 2 - started a little late, but so fresh and so clean clean ✨

His family made us incredibly delicious Mexican food. It was kinda pretty too, I guess.
We arrived at Max Vandersloot's (aka Sloot's) home in Walla Walla at 6:15, stated the evening with some truly beautiful pictures of his sheep and chickens.
Just filled the extra gas tank before heading to Walla-Walla #pumped #literally
